Cinder lebt bei ihrer Stiefmutter und ihren zwei Stiefschwestern, arbeitet als Mechanikerin und versucht gegen alle Widerstände, sich nicht unterkriegen zu lassen. Als eines Tages in unauffälliger Kleidung niemand anderes als Prinz Kai an ihrem Marktstand auftaucht, wirft das unzählige Fragen auf: Warum braucht der Prinz ihre Hilfe? Und was hat es mit dem plötzlichen Besuch der Königin von Luna auf sich, die Prinz Kai unbedingt heiraten will?
Seit ihrer Kindheit hat Cress die Erde nur aus der Ferne betrachten können. Unter strenger Aufsicht der bösen Königin Levana führt sie in ihrem Satelliten ein wenig abwechslungsreiches Leben. Doch immerhin hat sie sich mit den Jahren zu einer begnadeten Hackerin entwickelt und verschafft sich so Zugang zu Levanas geheimen Plänen. Da taucht plötzlich das Raumschiff von Cinder bei ihr auf, die ihr zur Flucht verhilft.
Zwei ganze Wochen ist Scarlets Großmutter nun schon verschwunden. Entführt? Tot? Die Leute im Dorf sagen, sie sei sicher abgehauen. Sie sei ja sowieso verrückt. Aber für Scarlet ist Grandmère alles - von ihr hat sie gelernt, wie man ein Raumschiff fliegt, Bio-Tomaten anbaut und seinen Willen durchsetzt. Dann trifft Scarlet einen mysteriösen Straßenkämpfer - Wolf. Er fasziniert sie; doch kann sie ihm trauen? Immerhin: Die reißerischen Berichte über Cinder und das Attentat auf Prinz Kai hält Wolf ebenso wie sie für Quatsch. Aber irgendein Geheimnis verbirgt der Fremde...
